Do Your Nuts Have Salmonella?

First peanut butter.. now pistachios?!

These are supposed to be healthy things, not killers in disguise. I wonder what would happen if companies stopped focusing purely on short term profits and aimed towards longevity, quality, and honesty. Crazy idea, huh?

Also, don't combine Salmon and Nutella in a recipe and then call it Salmonella.

    The fact that this recall was started before anyone got sick or was killed is a good sign of better-food-monitoring by the F.D.A.

    Hopefully this trend will continue. While recalls are dealy for the companies involved, it is better when they are not deadly for the consumers.

    Thanks for the info, Mr. Pearson! I checked out your website, Mr. Pearson and saw that you were selected as a Super Lawyer for 2007 and 2008. Only 5% of Attorneys are named "Super Lawyers" each year. Congrats! Keep up the great work.

    Ooooh. Does he get to wear his cape into the courtroom? How could you compete with a lawyer with a cape? It's like INSTANT WIN!

    I see no mention of capes on his website. Only the following:

    Super Lawyers is a listing of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. James H. Pearson was selected as a Super Lawyer for 2007 and 2008. Only 5% of Attorneys are named "Super Lawyers" each year.

    Super Lawyers rankings provide an objective and qualitative data point for consideration when choosing an attorney. Individuals named in the Super Lawyers publications are chosen by Key Professional Media, Inc. based entirely on their evaluation process and not on the basis of any paid consideration.

    This selection process includes an annual ballot sent to all active Attorneys in each state who are licensed for 5 years or more, an annual search for Attorneys who have received special recognition or professional achievement, a review of candidates by attorneys with demonstrated expertise in each area of law, and a review of each candidate's standing with the Bar Association.
